minion quotes - i hate them

Post by spacefem » Sun Aug 9, 15:25 2015

you guys when did this trend start... the idea that you take some perky stupid awful quote and just put it up next to a Minion - a cartoon character from Dreamworks' Despicable Me - and it's sharable?

I am unfriending everyone on facebook who is doing this. luckily I don't THINK it's any of you.

They don't make any damn sense! And the minions are criminals who are kinda cute and have funny antics and babble... that's IT. There is no evidence that they would dole out wisdom if they could speak english.

When did the minions get so trite and syrupy?

Why are they stealing old shitty quotes?

Why are there CHRISTIAN ONES?

Image

Why are they giving out horrible relationship advice?

stop people, it has to stop.

I have seen them, but I fortunately don't have anyone in my feed sharing them.

I saw one with a minion in bondage gear. I wasn't even in the weird part of the internet!

Aww, I thought this was gonna be about the McDonald's potty mouthed minion toys... Allegedly, 'McDonald's issued a statement saying the sounds are nonsense words, nothing offensive or profane. It says that the Minion Caveman toy makes three sounds — "para la bukay," ''hahaha" and "eh eh." ' Yeah, right.

In any case, the minion toy's quote seems an adequate response to the minion quotes trend.

Ugh, the minions. They make me so sad. They were so freaking cute, and I absolutely loved them in Despicable Me... and then corporate America got its greedy little hooks in them and ruined everything.

These are becoming a thing at my office now! Someone keeps printing them out and putting them in the kitchen area and around various other places.

That's more tolerable than the quotes. I mean even short yellow criminals have sex lives.

I dislike the movie without having seen it (ALL characters male? Come on! And no, I'm not talking of slapping boobs on the "female" ones, I talk about the all male names. The "male is neutral" thing, and all that shit.

My tolerance for minion quotes, therefore, is ...zero.

Well, I am beginning to notice I might not have seen as many minion quotes as all of you, because I love the minions! I think it has something to do with me being a kid at heart, really. :) I CAN see how not all those quotes are quite as funny or proper in any manner. Love your minion meme, MFS. It's like, if you don't like what's out there, change it in a way you do like! If you want to of course. Or shun it. Shun it deeply.

I feel like a bunch of minion memes with quote from dictators would be awesome. They'd read like this Far Side cartoons that got their captions switched with Family Circus.

Spacefem, sonic, you are the wind beneath my wings.

Permission to steal for my fb? Or would you like me to link?

well I always like links back, or a shoutout to our facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Spacefem/) but in this case since we stole the minions anyway it's not like we're entitled to anything so no requirements.

I went ahead and threw some favorites up on the facebook too, for sharing pleasure!

as I told my husband last night, if these are stolen, they'll be out in the world, therefore making the world a better place.

^ Agreed! I took the templates from somewhere else and just added the quotes.
